Instructional DVD Series
Tony Nester's Practical Urban Survival Series, Volumes 1 & 2

 

DVD 1: Disaster Planning and Home Preparation with Tony Nester

Over the years, we have had many students in our survival classes inquire about supportive material they can reference to further augment what we cover in our classes or to show other family members. This 2-volume instructional DVD series, is produced by Tony Nester. It covers the skills, strategies, and essential gear to have in place to provide to help you handle an urban crisis at home, work, or on the road.

The methods and skills shown in both DVDs flow in a logical order and cover how to prepare for both short emergencies ranging from 1-3 days to a long-term grid-down situation lasting several months or longer. As with Tony's survival books, the material is delivered in a straightforward, no-frills fashion so you walk away from each DVD with solid information that can be immediately applied.

Swedish Mora Knife

Most of the knife-work you do in the wilderness is of a fine nature - carving firemaking tools, traps, bows, or camp utensils, hence a good carving knife is what you will use the majority of the time. An ax will take care of the heavy-duty jobs. We have found the Swedish Mora knife to be a blade that holds an edge like no other. These blades are high-carbon steel (good for Flint & Steel firemaking), have a comfy rubber handle (handle color may vary), and come with their own sheath.

Cost: $20.00 per blade
plus $5.80 s/h (USA only)

Also included with the purchase is our Knife Use & Sharpening Tips sheet.

 
WARNING: Cutlery cannot be shipped to Marin, Napa, Ventura and Yolo counties, CA; D.C.; MA or Puerto Rico. Please check your State, County and City laws for restrictions before ordering Cutlery.

Spark Rod - Firestarter

Cost: $12.00

Note: When you get your spark-rod, the protective coating on the rod and the scraper will need to be lightly abraded so it works properly.
